OQ #30

Questions contribution: Arjun Murali

1. Connect the guy with a recurring motif occurring in the film.

X has its headquarters at Chikkamagaluru, Karnataka.
The first X was opened in 1996 on Brigade Road in Bangalore.
Today there are more than 1000 Xs in 141 cities.
X has even tied up with WorldSpace and Microsense to enable its Xs with satellite radio and Wi-Fi, respectively.
Now X is expanding into Europe by opening two Xs in Austria.

X is an insurance salesman working for Rock Bottom Insurance.
He often tries to sell other characters insurance.
Y based him on a salesman who came to Y's door and invited himself inside.
X is a gregarious, simple, and overbearing man who enters the story by barging in uninvited.
Z finds X frustrating, although X remains cheerfully oblivious and believes himself a great friend of Z.
X often quotes his Uncle Anatole's stories, to Z's irritation.
X is portrayed as a clueless tourist in the exotic places.
X is generally seen as a more modern character, as opposed to the older archetypes that inhabit Y's earlier works.
X? Y and Z become obvious then.

1) the song la that is used in inception to wake them up...i forget the name... its also the motifs used in the movie. when u slow down the song u realize that it is used as the motif. (taking a guess)

4)when u look at a pic of an ipad or the iphone u always see that the time displayed is 9:42 and 9:41 respectively. the fund being that if there is a meeting for 9:40 we will always reach by 9:42..or atleast the funda is something similar to that. :D
